Offering includes dedicated and shared storage options managed by ServerCentral’s experts

ServerCentral partners with Nimble Storage [NYSE: NMBL] to expand its dedicated and shared managed storage offering. All storage options are fully redundant and managed by ServerCentral, which brings more than 16 years of storage and IT infrastructure experience to customers worldwide.

“We are constantly evolving our storage options based on our customers’ requirements. We wanted a strategic partner to help us build a comprehensive offering,” said Tom Kiblin, ServerCentral VP of Managed Services. “After evaluating numerous vendors and extensive technology testing, we chose the Nimble Predictive Flash platform for its enterprise-grade features that are cost-effective and scalable as well as its market-leading analytics that provide significant visibility into the entire IT stack.”

ServerCentral offers dedicated and shared storage arrays, all of which are fully redundant, highly available and completely managed by ServerCentral’s experts. SmartSecure Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) certified software-based encryption allows ServerCentral to better serve highly regulated industries such as finance and healthcare.

“ServerCentral’s approach is building the right solution for each customer, which is the type of partner enterprises depend on when navigating today’s complex IT infrastructures,” said Leonard Iventosch, vice president of worldwide channels at Nimble Storage. “ServerCentral’s expertise is a great fit for customers who are looking for a strategic partner to help them make intelligent infrastructure decisions. With the Nimble Storage Unified Flash Fabric, partners like ServerCentral are able to provide their customers with flash for all enterprise applications by unifying All Flash and Adaptive Flash arrays into a single consolidation architecture with common data services.”

Nimble recently launched its Predictive All Flash Arrays that combine fast flash performance with InfoSight Predictive Analytics to deliver increased data velocity. The Nimble AF-Series All Flash arrays deliver absolute performance, superior scalability and non-stop availability, at a total cost of ownership (TCO) that is 33 to 66 percent lower than competitive arrays.

“Nimble’s Predictive All Flash arrays are an innovative addition to its offering and will be a fit for many of our customers,” said Kiblin. “Nimble has an impressive roadmap, and they deliver on their target release dates.”
